Unforgettable

“When the past is forgotten, the present is unforgettable” ― Martin Amis, Other People

I love knitting.

I really, really do.

I hate seaming. It never looks right to me. I see all the pictures of gorgeously seamed knitted items, and then I look at mine…and *shudder* gah.

I’m knitting up some Dory characters for my 3 year old. He is VERY anxious for me to finish.

The first one is baby Dory a pattern by Nicola Riley (a.k.a. NixknittingSticks on Ravelry). The pattern is very well written and easy to follow. It was a cinch to knit up, and now I’m onto the seaming. *sigh* poor Marrok…I joked that it would take me longer to seam her than it did to knit her…it really wasn’t a joke.

I had to tear out some of the stitching around the front/mouth area as I am really not happy with how I did it. Being a perfectionist really sucks sometimes…

I’m certain my tot will love her. I just hope I can finish her before he starts school…

In the meantime, life moves on…and appointments get forgotten 😐 I really wish I was joking. No harm done, except to my ego.
